In keeping with my promise to present and highlight other entrepreneurial adventures in addition to the possibilities offered by road transport, we can follow while we keep our nine to five, I decided to write on TAILORING. In fact, I`m really surprised I didn`t write about it earlier, because I`m completely surrounded by tailors, some who do it only as their livelihood and those who work at their day job while supplementing their income by sewing. It is not difficult for those who are interested to take this career step or incorporate tailoring skills into their CURRICULUM, especially for the purpose of making financial benefits. As a general rule, only one year of learning/learning, under the direction of a tailor/owner, is even a “maestro”, this period can be longer, in the case of a “nine to five”, where such training can only be on weekends, and with the high school student who can come after school. The theme of this registration was in his care, two employees who had completed under their tutelage, after training for one year, and served for six months. Five others are currently serving, two of whom are high school students who have to go to school in the morning. This informal learning atmosphere also serves as another means of raising funds to run the business, as the owner does not pay wages at all, but is paid by her employees, who have a contract and earn between 20 and 30% of their jobs (depending on the generosity of the owner), while the rest goes to the former. Apprentices also pay between `No`15,000 and `N` 20,000 for the year in which they will take an apprenticeship. During my visit to Nasarawa State in northern Nigeria, I spoke to a tailor in Lafia, the state capital.
She had learned to sew after high school because she wasn`t sure she could go to university, but as fate wanted, she had the chance to train, not because she was sponsored, but because she could pay for her courses on the product of her tailoring trade, and even after graduating from Nasarawa State Polytechnic, she continued her activities with EMPLOYEES (contract) and APPRENTIE. I can`t stress why a company like sewing is ideal for the “nine to five,” as well as for those who choose autonomy from the start as I`ve done so far, and it is a small business that the worker can start without looking for money outside of his salary, since it is usually within the salary of an employee to set up, even if it is not at once, but over time, to distinguish a certain monthly amount until one is able to get everything that is necessary. In major markets like Mandillas in Lagos, Nigeria`s commercial capital, tailors are available for fees for adjustments to finished clothes bought in markets to fit in seconds, even make shutters in record time of curtain materials purchased by people in the same market, and these tailors make a living, pay their rent, pay their children`s school fees, with changes to invest and play what many think are small. Hello, praise the perseverance you have in your blog and the detailed information you provided. The lady I saw in Nasarawa`s fees between `1,500` and `N`2,500 per job (even more so in cities like Lagos and Abuja) provides at least two of her daily expenses, with the exception of the 70% paid to her by her employees, and weaves the jobs that have been outsourced to her, as well as the fees paid by her apprentice.
